... rather as a desperate cry for an explanation. First up: beach weather. Early August temps showed highs in the 60's by mid-afternoon, cooler at the beach with the steady wind.

But.... we found the drive along the upper northern OR coast more scenic and we did make it to Seaside, one of towns we wanted to see.
